Any thoughts on this one? There are two I recognize for sure

:poop: - an Instant Martian from Looney Tunes
:coachz: - PaRappa the Rapper
EDIT: three more
:cheat: - Maxwell from Scribblenauts
:bubs: - Grunkle Stan from Gravity Falls (which Matt wrote for, I believe)
:homsar: - Greg from Over the Garden Wall

And here's what I can tell from the rest:
:sad: just has a generic hat and coat type deal - getting a Thompson twins vibe for some reason
:pom: has long hair parted in the middle, and that's all (at least based on silhouette)
:hr: looks exactly the same, but with a baseball bat (or something) with blurred edges
:marzi: Has long hair and possibly also a cap - I'm getting Jay (of Jay and Silent Bob) for some reason, but that's not likely
:sm: has something on his head, not sure what
:sb: is anyone's guess
:kot: appears to have on a rounded helmet(?) of some sort, is holding a plate with a slice of cheese/pie/cake/etc. on it, and has maybe a foot? or something in front of him as well

:hr: Ness or (perferiably) Scout
:sb: this joke finally gets subverted and he really is Ridley albeit far more simplistic
:cheat: Alphys from Undertale
:coachz: with you on Parappa, but could also be G-Mo Skee
:bubs: Peter Gabriel
:sm: Zangief or Bruce Lee or Jackie Chan
:sad: Charlie Daniels
:marzi: Stan Marsh
:kot: Dalek
:homsar: The Great Gazoo, the Pillsbury Doughboy or SpongeBob with his whole skin shaved off (Scardey Pants episode)

With the baseball bat, I could see Homestar :hr: being Ness as you said.

Strong Bad :sb: has got to be someone from an old-timey wideo grame because of the pixellation. Did anyone else notice his costume sounding an awful lot like Mrs. Commanderson? Come to think of it, aside from Strong Bad as Homestar as Angus Young and the Goblin as Strong Bad as The Bee, is there a rule prohibiting characters from dressing up as each other? Or was that a one-time deal? It sure would be interesting seeing a big character, like Pom Pom, attempting to dress as Coach Z or something. (Strong Sad lookalike contest or Homestar/The Cheat "do over" swap doesn't count, that's not Halloween)

I rather thought Marzipan :marzi: might be John Lennon.

The Cheat :cheat: looks like some sort of grandma character with curly hair and glasses.

That one is interesting. His hair is a bit more afro-like in my opinion, but it does seem like Strong Mad ought to dress as a martial artist sometime.

The idea of one of the characters dressing as something else that either of TBC worked for is interesting, I hope you're right about that one.

My cultural literacy is reeeeally bad... I'm not able to guess, suggest, or recognize costumes, sorry.

There is a squintmoji variation image uploaded a little while ago. Hopefully we can figure out what the other costumes are.

So I do know the costumes of the following characters: :poop: , :homsar: , :bubs: , :cheat: , and :coachz: . If anyone's seen one of DaBurninator's pieces, you'll see he'd predicted Coach Z's costume. What are the odds?

Clearly, Homestar has to be someone with a PROPELLER cap. And for some strange reason, that object he's holding looks blurred.

If I had to guess what Strong Bad's actual costume was going to be (we all know it won't be Ridley in the Halloween toon), I would expect Lord Hater from Wander Over Yonder. Believe it or else, Matt was involved in The Bounty and The Time Bomb and Mike was involved in The Liar. You might be asking, "Why Lord Hater?" Isn't it obvious? Red color, green eyes, gruff voice, interest in ladies, you get the idea. Besides, it could form a nod to what Disney XD show is superior between Strong Bad and Bubs. Also, saveWOY, because a third season was lovingly planned out, but it got denied before the second season premiered.
